    Details of Disappearance

    Castellano resided with her common-law husband and two children in the 1500 block of Serene Drive in Laredo, Texas in 2002. On May 19 of that year, her husband told Castellano's parents she had left their residence after an argument with him. She has never been heard from again. Her husband is not considered a suspect in her case.

    Castellano graduated from Nixon High School in 1995, and was formerly employed as a teacher's aide at Lamar Middle School. Her parents do not believe she would willingly abandon her children. Foul play is possible in her case, but due to the lack of available evidence it is classified as a missing person case rather than a crime.
